This year’s Garden Party will offer visitors an opportunity to enjoy both new and old coastal construction from the classic 1840s old creole style to modern modular construction methods.
The singular property that offers this unique mix is located at 701 East Scenic Drive. An impressive new interpretation of the coasts old vernacular style, the home was completed in 2015 and has seven glass-enclosed bays that reflect the coasts old style using contemporary building methods and requirements.
The lovely grounds also feature two reminders of old Pass Christian: a small 1840s cottage that was described in an 1895 travel guide and remarked on for its old creole style, as well as another cottage-turned guest house, affectionately called the Chicken House due to its decorations.
